Summary: I rented this game and I'm glad I didn't spend money on it. I like the idea of performing surgeries, and it's a good use of the ds's touch screen technology. The first few surgeries were quite fun, but it quickly gets really hard. The fact that the game is entirely linear means if you get stuck (which I did) you just have to try the same thing over and over.

Summary: Having read good reviews of this game, I decided to give it a try. I initially spent quite a lot of time on it and was quite enjoying it. Ok the story segments were rather cheesy but being fairly used to the anime style I was expecting that. I quite enjoyed the initial aspects of the game, learning to use the different medical techiques, cleaning a patient, opening them up, removing glass, draining blood, stiching them back up and bandaging etc etc. It was all quite fun.
Pros: Great control system, lots of techniques to learn
Summary: I snapped this game up as soon as it was released as i thought the concept was ace! use my stylus to cut people open and perform operations!! how cool!. Sadly it was just too hard!! i did the first couple of 'levels' and got into it and then they just became stupid hard! for that reason it was traded in quick smart. So hence i have marked the fun level down because it wasnt fun after a while it was just frustrating!.
Initial enjoyment quickly replaced by utter frustration.

Summary: This game has a lot going for it. it's perfectly suited to the DS. The graphics are simple but cute, the sound not so agonising that you need to turn it down all the time like on some other DS titles. The music in the surgery complements the mood and 'drama' of the operation. You are always under pressure during the game.
